: the gop sent its first early vote mailing just this week. >> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen smooth is credited with making the iowa gop's 1 millionth voter call this cycle. >> i'm calling about issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she's doing her part now as republicans play early voting catch-up. >> we're working hard here. we're rolling up our sleeves and putting our boots on and we're going at it. so we still have time. >> reporter: john king, cnn, iowa city, iowa. >>> and don't forget, catchhe first presidential debate, denver, colorado, romney versus obama, next wednesday, 8:00 p.m. right here on cnn. >>> all right, it is time the world draws a clear red line, a strong warning from israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu about iran. and at first elected to homeming court only to find out it was an evil prank. how one teen is getting back at the bullies. in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we'v
. and then i think there is a second component and that is that he selected as his running mate paul ryan. paul ryan, someone who is passionate about deconstructing comments of the 47%. >> has romney's campaign done a good job of responding to the criticism? >> he first comes out and says i stand by it basically. number one, that's bad. but then as he's tried to move away from it, he's ended up stumbling all over the place. the other day he was talking about showing empathy by doing health care reform in massachusetts, which simply reinforced that if that's empathy, then barack obama -- >> do you think the president used 47% to box him in? >> i think so but he's got to be careful. obama doesn't want 47%, he wants 51, 52, 53. >> john nichols, great to have you with us. >> the first day or two it was like the waco with the david koresh situation where they're trying to smoke him out. >> todd akin's own campaign is comparing him to a cult leader. >> this is somebody who makes michelm michele bachmann look like a hippie. brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to
think most people approve of his selection of paul ryan. it's tough. it's very difficult. >> why is he behind? >> i think he is behind because americans probably feel better than they did before jobs and the economy even though it's terrible. it's sort of the -- >> right track, wrong track? that's interesting. tell me. just stretch that out a little bit. >> i think americans see a glimmer of hope. there is slight improvement in the economy, and i think that some people, for example, a state like ohio, battleground state, thanks in my view to the governor that the unemployment is down. that's true in some of the others. i understand how tough this campaign is. i do believe that media coverage has something to do with it. maybe right up to election day americans will still be making up their minds. >> let's turn to overseas. i know there are some things that concern you, but let me first ask you about libya, the deaths of those four americans, including the american ambassador to libya on september 11th. friday we got the administration sort of definitive statement this looks as though i
to the floor to try and get infrastructure funding. and the republicans simply held it up. i mean, paul ryan was right in the center of it. and now you're going to make him vice president of the united fruc bininharg oosin it makes no sense. the country cannot work if we don't invest both in people's education and in the infrastructure, and romney has no record oft, and paul ryan has a recordf being ains it. so i don't see how anybody's going to vote for them. >> on the stage, the theatrics of it all and the semanticof it as well, mike rowe is up there talking about the very pe tmiomwa dissing behind closed doors at that fund-raiser. he can't say it about them, but maybe this guy can. maybe i'll hand the microphone to this guy, this guy named mike rowe, who wears a workman's hat and a sweatshirt and goes around and has pretty good vibility, maybe he can get up there d saateadoe t e s. nds omt a desperate move, the choreoaphy of all of this. >> well, it's really based, ed, on the idea that the american people are stupid and they'll forget what he said last week. and now he comes with this sh
state of paul ryan, who is also on the republican ticket. the gamble that the republicans made was that he would give them a bump here in the upper midwest, and that has not happened. it's not because paul ryan fails to connect with people or people don't know who mitt romney is. i think we are witnessing a full-scale swing in the pendulum. here in wisconsin scott walker survived the recall effort, but you have tammy baldwin pulling ahead of tommy thompson, a double-digit swing from where he was. she used to be trailing after the democratic convention. president obama is pulling ahead in the upper midwest. i think this may be less about -- this is only mitt romney, and mitt has to be mitt and it's all about mitt. this runs deeper than that. this is a sort of recentering of the american electorate we're witnessing. >> let's go back to the political article. it isn't the chair or the ho-hum convention or the looked video or stewart stevens or the improving economy or media bias or the message or mormonism. it's mitt. is it that simple? is the problem at the end of the day that it
on election day in november. >>> paul ryan, a green bay packers fan from wisconsin, chimed in on the referee ruling that cost his team a win monday night. ryan joked, quote, i half think these refs work part-time for the obama administration in the budget office. >>> mitt romney had kind words for bill clinton yesterday, saying a few nice words from bill clinton can do a lot of good, he said. and he joked that he would wait for his clinton bounce in the polls. >>> and mr. romney's wife, ann, was on the "tonight show" with jay leno talking about his husband's plans for america's future and she explained to jay how she feels about mitt running for president. >> four years ago i made a videotape and on the videotape, i looked in the camera and he said, mitt, this is for you, sweetheart, i'm never doing this again. >> well, jay also asked ann romney if mitt is a good dancer. she replied he's gotten to be a better dancer. and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> elsewhere, missouri republican congressman todd aiken let the deadline to let the senate race pass yesterday without drop
challenger mitt romney and paul ryan sat down with karl come ron. >> he asked romney and ryan if they think the president downplayed the situation for political purposes. >> i think what the president said the developments in the middle east are like bumps in the road he badly miss understands what's happening not just the diplomats but muslim brother becoming president of egypt, iran moving toward nuclear capabilities. they are far from being pumps in the road. >> i would sass this is part of a story when we project weakness by cutting military with defense cut by equivocating when we speak overseas about these issues it projects weakness. and when america projects weakness our adversaries are more willing to pass us more of an incentive to attack us. allies have less reason to trust us. with the projection of weakness we disagree with that. we believe with speaking with moral clarity and purpose overseas so we are res lieutenant. if we are res lieutenant allies will be more willing to trust us. >>> romney's campaign surrogate and former new hampshire governor also talking. he's hitting th
" narrative. sunday paul ryan said it's not in the least bit true that cutting the tax rate by 20% would cut $20 trillion in five years. >> how much does it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> we'll get to the -- >> the cut in tax rates is lower, by 20%. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. lowering the tax rates by broadening the tax rates -- >> let me --. i -- >> you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the time. it would take me too long go through all of the math. >> that's a quote you're going to hear a lot, i guess from the obama campaign and the president himself. meanwhile the president who's known for being a bit long-winded and can have an hour-long news conference with only eight questions is working to sharpen his responses. quote, we eh had a hard time getting every point across within the time limit. you're trying to make a case to the people, so you have to make sure your answers connect with people. he got some advice from howard dean. >> the president's got to avoid being irritable. hi's got to roll with the punches. mitt is going to be out there, aggress
the way you frame your policy. one reason conservatives were very unimpressed as the paul ryan for someone who is very careful to say that i put a safety net. we want to make it more sustainable for the future. that message has gotten drowned out, in part because of how it is framed. because they haven't been able to successfully counter the framing coming from the other side. partly because it doesn't seem organic and natural. if you have someone who can make that argument any more compelling way, a more diverse electorate, maybe we would see a very different result. >> and trying to talk about republicans back into it. they are back into it because of the nature of the republican primary electorate. it is hard to see in the short run when you have the force that is putting that romney into much more conservative positions than he might normally take. >> that is a great and important point. we see when you see people that are able to overcome that, george w. bush is a classic example. it allows him to get through the primary process without having to establish authenticity to the extent t
against what is in the interest of the rodney team. maybe they thought that they nominated paul ryan and would be able to take advantage with what they believe to be this massive culturally conservative white working-class cooper voters but it does not seem to be happening. they're making some progress, according to the poll. some progress among white college graduates, but it's not anywhere close to what is needed to take the state. we are not able to sort of most of the state on the face of this ongoing demographic pattern of support. florida is a state that, let's face it, if our romney campaign loses florida they're chances of winning the 2012 collection are close to zero. and right now at this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead, by several points according to latest polls. again, if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, like the pattern of support, the best group for romney to make progress in. we will look at the breakouts. we're not seeing any province being made among these voters. we're not seeing a noticeably bigger margin among
of the romney team in wisconsin. so maybe they thought if they nominate paul ryan they would be able to take advantage what they believe to be this massive culturally conservative white working-class voters in the state but again it doesn't seem to be happening. they are making some progress, some progress among current nine but it's not anywhere close to what's needed to take the state. so they're not able to sort of master the state in the face of this demographic change and support. florida is a state that lets face it is the romney campaign loses florida, their chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero i think. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a
his job as a family and where paul ryan is, caring about america and also with his family, are important connections between them and the american people. i think with regard to connecting with creating jobs for families, and looking at those things, that that's where it really comes down to, look rat mothers and fathers and grandparents in the eye and say there is a future here for you. that will be a comparison between the policies of president obama and governor romney on this. >> i think you're right on that strategy. representative tim murphy, republican from the state of pennsylvania. it's nice to see you, sir. thank you for talking with us this morning. >> great to see you, too. have a great day. >>> still ahead on "starting point," will a new tip lead to finding jimmy hoffa's body today? police are about to start digging. one man who studied the case for 37 years and has talked to the tipster says he's doubtful. he'll tell us why coming up next. and ard thieves storm a jewelry store. take a look at these pictures. all demand that the customers get on the ground. th
-and-run critique here. a slogan of the week there. his only momentum came when he chose paul ryan and seemed ready to engage in the big stuff -- medicare entitlements, tax reform, national solvency, restructured welfare state. yet he has since retreated to the small and the safe. when you're behind however safe is fatal. even whhis counterpunching has gone miniature. make the case. go large. about a foreign policy in ruins, an archaic 20th century welfare state, the guarantee of 21st century insolvency and an alternate vision of an apologetically assertive america abroad unafraid of fundamental structural change at home. it might just work and it is not too late. mark halperin is it too late? he capable as a candidate to do this after all we've seen over the past five years from mitt romney? or not seen? >> if you watch conservative media, read krauthammer, watch fox or talk privately to any republican politician, it's hard to find anybody, even some people as you all know inside the romney campaign, who think they're doing the right thing now. that they're ontrack to win just by governor romney s
to health care we don't revamp the entire social security system to meet inside restrains that paul ryan thinks works but doesn't work for america. this is real questions on voters' mines and that's changed the dynamic of the election and we're seeing great candidates on our side with that message who are going to win in november. >> and in massachusetts, republican scott brown has apologized for what some of his aides did in appearing on this video where they were mocking elizabeth warren for her native-american heritage. that is apology sufficient and should this be an issue in this campaign? >> certainly it's up to the people of massachusetts to determine that. they have watched this race, they have seen scott brown tell people to take a look at elizabeth warren to determine her heritage, which is frankly offensive to me, people in massachusetts will make that determination. but i will say this. again, we have a race where elizabeth warren is fighting for the values that american families care about, making sure we all have an opportunity that our kids all have access to education, th
down. republicans from mitt romney and paul ryan to sarah palin, sean hannity, and rush limbaugh all urged akin to get out of the race after he said that. karl rove's american crossroads super pac pulled their money from him and while talking to donors, rove made this, his think being what akin was doing to the party crystal clear. he said we should sink todd akin. if he's found mysteriously murdered don't look for my whereabouts. that's karl. the national republican senate committee also pulled funds from akin's race. its chairman, john corn of texas, said last weekd just last week, he had a simple answer on their involvement with akin going forward. he told "the hill" newspaper, quote, we're done. well, that was then, this is now. the deadline for akin to remove himself from the ballot has passed, and slowly republicans are rejoining the akin bandwagon, if you can call it that. the national republican senate committee, for example, said yesterday, as with every republican senate candidate, we hope todd akin wins in november, and we will continue to monitor his race as low asly in t
is too expensive. obama care doesn't make it less expensive. >> romney and paul ryan propose to cap malpractice insurance, cut medicaid by $810 billion over the next ten years, give states more control over their medicaid funds, overhaul medicare. the overhaul, people now younger than 55. when they reach retirement, would have the option of getting a voucher to purchase private insurance or they could stick with traditional medicare. >> this financial support system is designed to guarantee that seniors can always afford medicare coverage no exceptions. >> while the repeal of obama care would get rid of the prescription drug benefit to seniors, romney doesn't want to take out all of the law's provisions. >> we have to make sure that people who have preexisting conditions are able to get insured and that folk that is get sick do not get dropped. >> the president of the american action forum doesn't support the current law. >> both sides agree the amount we spend on medicare has to be capped. they just disagree on how to get there. romney and ryan say what we're going to do is the giv
. >> straight out on the trail and covering both cig nn w ron mott on the phone with congressman paul ryan's event in ohio. we have heard several messages over the last week of the republican campaign. what do we exct to hear today? >> reporter: thomas, good day to you. coressn ryusan hen wa to the event. we are at walker manufacturing making lawn mowers and we think the message is one governor romney brought here two days a is that the economy cannot stand another four years of the president's failed economic licies and there out here in the mounin wtheat plains and hear congressman ryan talk about the keystone pipeline and focusing on the country's national resources, bringing energy jobs online and pting people back to work and pecting the prent to h >> o thing, though, ron, the obama campaign said, though, if romney loses ohio it is likely game over. is there a sense that the republican campaign is feeling that pressure? >> reporter: yeah. i think they're acknowledging they'r behind. they don't believeit's game eroepca president ever has gotten to the white house without taking ohio an
romney, paul ryan, we're all pro union all sudden. >>ybs favor of the union. >> everybody's in favor of the union. >> don't you think that roger goodell and the owners and everyone else at this point, you know, have to -- have to cave in and do something? >> sure. >> about the replacement refs before we go through another weekend lith? >> i d't kf tet them in even if they negotiated a settlement today. i don't know if the regular nfl refs could get back for this weekend. i think they've got to make a deal and they can get some concessions i'm surerom the union but they've got to make a deal quickly and roger goodell iseall ithe t seat and i t w he has to lead the owners, not follow the owners. >> this is a game that's already been in some fire for injuries to players, for roughness, things like that. they don't need another problem. they better settle. >> i agree with vin. >> talking to the playe rep in moment coming up. anhatooth you and if you have nothing to do this weekend we may put you on the field. ed rendell and vin weber, you could do a better job. >> iran's president takin
go bankrupt and then took credit for managing bankruptcy and then picked paul ryan as his running mate who was for the bailout. that's a consistent theme that romney doesn't have the right message. they do think they're losing. they do think because they have a strong ground game there there is still time to turn around. >> you make your point in the article that a lot of people think this thing will tighten as we get closer to election day. >> right. >> the other thing though is governor john kasich who had been promoting the ohio economic recovery even though he's a republican and trying to get mitt romney elected. romney of course has been talking down the economy because that's good for him. let's talk about that. >> yeah. that's a major complication. jim mengsed in his piece. the unemployment rate in ohio is 7.1%, in columbus it's about 6%. that's a bellwether area. stop after stop john kasich goes around the state and says ohio is booming, ohio is rocking. that gives headaches to people in washington saying hey, this conflicts with our message. there's ongoing friction and t
. and mitt romney never was able to explain that in a way that paul ryan or, you know, a lot of other conservatives could have explained it in two or three seconds. yes, i did that in massachusetts, but let me tell you something. eswon michigan, doesn't work in mississippi, doesn't work in minnesota. we've got 50 different states, and let's have experimentation. let's have competition. let's have legislative laboratories and see what suits ea sta's restsst hese that. he could have explained that away in january in iowa and could have been talking about this bill for the past eight, nine months in an excited, positive way. another thing, steve ratner, i want to go to you on this lk- er w talked tose y governor ed rendell who said that he was so impressed with mitt romney when he went up to massachusetts. and mitt romney was explaining to him all the details of this health care plan and all the great things that it did for the sssedents, for the people of anatre going man, this guy is so impressive. ed said i see no connection between that mitt romney and this mitt romney. you've talked
